Intro: EE chord

Verse:
EE chord
I was raised up believing
      AA chord
I was somehow unique
       BB chord
Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes
   AA chord                       EE chord
Unique in each way you can see

Verse:
EE chord
And now after some thinking
    AA chord
I'd say I'd rather be
  BB chord
AA chord functioning cog in some great machinery
 AA chord                       EE chord
Serving something beyond me

Chorus:
EE chord                                        AA chord
But I don't, I don't know what that will be
         EE chord                       AA chord         EE chord
I'll get back to you someday soon you will see

Verse:
EE chord
What's my name, what's my station
        AA chord
Oh just tell me what I should do
        BB chord
I don't need to be kind to the armies of night
           AA chord                    EE chord
That would do such injustice to you

Verse: 
EE chord
Or bow down and be grateful
         AA chord
And say "Sure take all that you see"
       BB chord
To the men who move only in dimly-lit halls
       AA chord                    EE chord
And determine my future for me

Chorus:
EE chord                                     AA chord
And I don't, I don't know who to believe
         EE chord                     AA chord           EE chord
I'll get back to you someday soon you will see

Verse: 
EE chord
If I know only one thing
          AA chord
It's that every thing that I see
       BB chord
Of the world outside is so inconceivable
AA chord                  EE chord
Often I barely can speak

Yeah I'm tongue tied and dizzy
      AA chord                    
And I can't keep it to myself
      BB chord                             
What good is it to sing helplessness blues?
           AA chord                 EE chord
Why should I wait for anyone else?

Chorus:
EE chord                                          AA chord
And I know, I know you will keep me on the shelf
          EE chord                    AA chord       EE chord
I'll come back to you someday soon myself

I'd work till I'm sore
